The game will be taking place at the FNB Stadium. Kick-off is at 18h00.
The last time South Africa and Ghana faced off it was the Western Africans who came out eventual 2-0 winners. Brighton & Hove Albion striker Percy Tau is confident that his team will qualify for the showpiece event in Cameroon.
“We all know if one loses and another one wins, the winner gains an advantage to go to AFCON.” Tau told the media.
“But I am confident that we will work hard and we should get the all-important result. We also want to use the home ground advantage we have over Ghana and do better than we did against them in the away game.
‘’We watched the videos of that game in which we lost 2-0 and saw what we did wrong. We hope we are in a very good frame of mind and that we will do well,” the striker added.
Tau says that the team are not feeling under any pressure from outside of the camp. Particularly himself as Tau is idolised in the country and many people are looking to him to inspire the team.
“No, no, I believe whatever we intend to achieve, we must do it as a collective. When I am given the responsibility, I share it with my teammates, we all share responsibilities to try and help the team to qualify.
“We share the pressure as a team but as I said, the ultimate prize is qualification,” the striker stresses.
He also took the time to thank South Africans for the support and love given to him since leaving Mamelodi Sundowns for Europe.
“I appreciate their support and must continue to do so with love. I would also want everyone to be safe out there during this pandemic, take measures to stay safe and remain healthy.
“These are the people who make us who we are and I really appreciate their love and I am glad my work has always made them proud,” Tau concluded.
